There are so many questions about windshields and buffeting, I thought I would share my experience. This is the mid sized shield from VStream and measures about 10.5 inches (in the typical Vic measurement style). It does however close up the opening below the shield some so it only sits about 2.5 inches higher than the stock XC shield not the full 3.5 inches you may think. I am 5'10" and have a 32" inseam so you get an idea of height. The shield does a great job getting the wind up over my head. The air hits just at the top vent of my full face helmet which is perfect for airflow. It also keeps the bugs from hitting my face shield. I look well over the shield when riding but it is very clear for a shorter rider who might look through. The material is very thick and appears strong. Overall fit and finish are great. I also think the design compliments the bike well. I rode 1100 miles this past weekend both with and without soft lowers and buffeting from air over the fairing was non-existent. I got some from under the fairing but the shield has no bearing on that. Overall very happy and a great buy.
